IT’S ALL GOING TO BE OKAY..remediation at its finest // LETIFFANYSHOW ✨

hello friends 12

Welcome back to my blog!

Before I begin, I’d like to thank everyone who sent me positive vibes and encouraged me through this process. It made me really happy and your support definitely got me through this! Thank you so much! You guys are the best! ❤

So, remediation. Let’s talk about it.

For those who are new to my blog, hello! my name is Tiffany and I’m so glad you’re here! My program requires us to get a 90% or higher on everything which includes exams, assignments, projects, etc! If we do not get a 90% or higher on our exams, we go into remediation. It’s kind of a second chance for us to get that 90% of higher except during remediation, you don’t get team points. We have to get that 90%+ on our own and through evidence based review. Scary right? If you don’t pass remediation, then you go into block remediation. If you don’t pass that, then you get held back to the following cohort. It’s a lot of pressure! *hyperventilates*

So last night, I couldn’t sleep. I just felt like I didn’t study enough and I felt very anxious about it all. During the weekend, I tried to brush up on the terms and information I wasn’t confident on and wished for the best. It was also REALLY windy outside, which made it even harder to sleep. Sigh..

Morning came and I was so tired. I had no energy to do anything but I had to do what I had to do! I dragged my sleepy butt to school extra early so I could review a little bit more before the exam (and chow down my Mcdonalds lol). Remediation took place in a really small room next to the lecture hall we take exams in. It was stuffy, warm, and I’m pretty sure I was inhaling everyone else’s CO2. HELP. There was 10 of us who remediated and that room definitely was not made for 10 nervous people. yikes..

The exam started and oh my goodness I was like, wtf is this? I definitely planned to use the whole 90 minutes even if I finished early. I didn’t want to do bad later and regret not using the given time. Question after question, I felt half good and half bad. Towards the end of the exam, I started having a panic attack. I’m not sure if it was my fear of “failing” again or the fact that the room had 10 people in it and I was suffocating. But I made it through the exam and I just let the timer run til the end.

Next came the evidence based review. There were a couple students who were borderline “failing” so we definitely had to EBR as many questions as possible.

Evidence based review is where we try to argue against questions that we feel could be worded better or have another answer and we find evidence to prove it. This could be from textbooks, the ATI books, or the module summaries the prof gave us.

I actually passed without the EBR and it was a relief! I missed 4 out of 60 which might be the best score I’ve ever gotten without team points. But it made me think about how I probably could have done this the first time if I knew how to study for assessment 1. We all agreed that the remediation exam was harder than the official exam. For a lot of the questions, I stared at it like ..um..am I supposed to know this? For example, diabetic neuropathy. I didn’t even read that section but luckily, I was able to use critical thinking and think my way through it. GAH that assessment is DONEZO.

For some reason, I always get a headache after being at school for too long. I’m not sure if it’s the air or just the environment but damn, I always need to have my backpack ibuprofen with me. What? You have your backpack chapstick and I have my backpack ibuprofen! 🙂

hehe welp, I will resume to vlogging tomorrow once I’m well rested. We start cardio and it sounds difficult. I also have my video assessment on Thursday for medication administration, which if you’ve seen my vlogs, I’m pretty nervous but okay about it. Wish me luck! But for now, I’m off to bed. Signing off from this blog post, I hope you have a beautiful day and don’t forget to shine bright, you’re beautiful! Thanks for reading! 

 

Peace out.✌

IS THIS STILL SOMETHING I WANT TO DO? // LETIFFANYSHOW✨

hello friends 14

Welcome back to my blog!

Long time no blog post! I sincerely apologize for that. After Clinicals ended, pharmacology began and it’s been kicking my butt. No joke. All the meds sound the same and I can’t pronounce half of them. Oh boy… Anyways, today I thought I’d write about my first clinical experience. I vlogged it but I wanted to write about some things I didn’t talk about in the vlog!

Clinical rotations are like reality checks. You’ve learned everything there is to know about fundamentals but once you step onto that hospital floor, it’s something else. That is exactly what it was like for me.

This past week, I completed my first round of clinical rotations! This rotation focused on the things we learned in Block 3: Fundamentals of Nursing. My rotation was two weeks long with 3 consecutive 12-hour shifts in each week. So my group’s shifts were Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. I’ve never had to work the weekend before so it was a different experience. My Thursday–Saturday turned into my usual Tuesday–Thursday where my Friday was the dreadful day. Weird right? It really messed up my days. But after getting used to it, I stopped noticing.

12 hours…720 minutes..43200 seconds… 12 hours doesn’t sound so bad until you’re working it. The first day of clinicals went by really slow. Every time I looked up at the clock, only a few minutes passed by. It was such a drag. But then the next day, time went by a little faster. And by the final third day, time went by fast BUT all the exhaustion from the past few days accumulated and hit me in one day. Saturdays were my most tiring day.

Overall, I had fun and I loved it. It got me excited to go back to learning and graduate so i can be a Real Nurse. Anyways, I’m going to let my vlogs do the rest of the talking! I hope you enjoy!

 

 

OH but one thing I didn’t talk about was what happened during my evaluation. During evaluation, we sat down individually with our clinical instructor and she went over our performance with us. At one point, my clinical instructor asked me, “is this still something you want to do?” and that put me in a really weird place. As you can tell, I wasn’t doing so well. But it made me ask myself, “is this what I want to do?” In my professor’s opinion, I am a shy person who needs to spread her wings. TRUE. But when she asked me that, I felt lost again. Remember a few posts back, I talked about how I got to nursing?

Let’s review, TLDR; I didn’t know what to do with my life until I fell in love with nursing.

Well basically, I was back in that place. I love studying about nursing. I got through these past three blocks because I had a passion for nursing. But when I got onto the hospital floor, it was like another world to me. Suddenly everything I learned turned into black and white and there I was on the first day of clinicals, standing in a patient’s room not knowing what to say or what to do. I froze. When I was shadowing a nurse, I froze. I didn’t know what to ask, I didn’t know what to say, WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME? But as time went on, I got comfortable in the hospital where I was able to talk to patients and help them with whatever they needed. But when she asked me that, there was the only thing rushing through my head.

Is this still something I want to do?

Damn, who knew eight words could mess me up. Not gonna lie, I went to the bathroom afterwards and cried it out and then went back to work. I hope it wasn’t obvious. Then after my shift, I went home and I cried some more. I don’t know if I ever mentioned this but one of my biggest fears is losing interest in my career/wasting time. I felt very meh about the whole situation. But my friends pep talked me back into my senses and the next day, I walked back into that hospital one last time. Still with some self-doubt, I tried my best to give it my all on my last day of clinicals. I think it was one of the best clinical days yet! I had a great nurse who taught me so much and I feel like I opened up a bit.

I have to accept the fact that I will never be as outgoing as some people BUT it does not define what kind of nurse I will be. And it takes practice. I hope by the next clinicals, I’ll be able to “spread my wings” a bit but for now, signing off from this blog post… I hope you have a beautiful day and don’t forget to shine bright, you’re beautiful✨

Oh by the way, the answer to that question: yes, this is still something I want to do. Honestly, my clinical instructor wasn’t always watching me because there’s 8 of us and one of her. Therefore, she wasn’t always around when I was doing stuff. So she missed many opportunities where I interacted with patients and helped them with what they needed. I really enjoyed being around the patients and being able to be there for them. Patient care requires a lot of patience, time, and responsibility. I may not be perfect but who was ever perfect on their first try? Anyways, nowww I’m signing off. Thanks for reading! Ok bye! ❤

 

Peace out.✌

psst…Let’s get to know each other! Today’s question is…NACHOS. What would you put on yours? For me, I’d put a crap ton of melted cheese, carne asada, and some green onions. I would probably throw some tator tots in there too cause why not? 😀

STORY TIME: HOW I GOT INTO NURSING SCHOOL // LETIFFANYSHOW✨

Hello friends 2

Welcome back to my blog ❤

OOF it’s been a crazy two weeks! Nursing school is getting harder and harder and I don’t even want to think about what’s coming up next. But now that I’m reaching the end of “block 2” of my program, I thought I’d talk about how I got into nursing school. You know, before i forget the details and stuff… so let’s get started!

Once I decided that nursing was the right career for me, I started looking into nursing schools. I didn’t even know where to start so I googled “nursing programs” and a bunch of results came out and I was just overwhelmed. A colleague of mine advised me to go out of state for nursing school. (If ya’ll didn’t know, I’m from California). She said that the programs in California are super impacted and she was right. The wait lists were like 2 years long! No thanks, I want to get to nursing school ASAP! So I started thinking of places I would love to go and I thought of Nevada. It’s right next to California and not too far from Los Angeles. Like 5 hours?

Type click search and BAM.

I found a school that I wasn’t even sure was legit. I mean sometimes I come across websites/schools that aren’t really a real school. But I decided to do a little bit more research and I discovered that it was indeed a real school and they had an accelerated BSN program.

Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing program: aka second degree nursing program is for those who have completed a undergraduate degree and the required prereqs before enrolling.

I looked around the website to see if it was a program for me and eventually decided to put in my information for “more info”. About a few days later, I got a phone call and lowkey I let it ring. It was an admissions advisor from the school and she ended up leaving me an email telling me that I could call her and if anything, she would try again in a few days. I was nervous and didn’t know what to say. Heck, I didn’t even know if that was the school I wanted to attend. The next time she called, I picked up and I felt so nervous. But the admissions advisor was so easy to talk to! She asked me some questions and got some background about me. She told me everything I wanted to know and answered every question I had about the program. Even though all the information she told me was on the website, it was nice to be informed with information catered to my situation.

She had me send in my unofficial transcript to give me an overview of what I needed to do in order to be eligible to apply. She went through my transcript and told me what prereqs I had left. Turns out, I only needed Anatomy but I needed to get an A to have an eligible GPA. Talk about the pressure… She sent me a list of online anatomy courses I could take. Online courses were essential for me because I was working at the time and online classes are way more flexible. I picked one and rolled with it. (Spoiler alert: I got an A (98.7%) I was so excited!)

The next thing on my list was the The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) exam. It’s an exam used by many schools as an admissions test. I had no idea it existed until my advisor told me to take it. My advisor recommended buying a practice book so I got one from Amazon. Thank goodness for Amazon prime. As soon as it got here, I went ham on that Kaplan book.  I started from the first page and ended with the very last page. (click here for my TEAS tips). I walked into the exam half asleep and 4 hours later, I made it out alive. TBH I forgot how painful it was to sit still for 4 hours in a room with 30 other tired people. Damn.. how did I do it in high school?

Well that was done and the anatomy course was done… what’s next?

The application cycle finally opened up and my advisor sent me the link with a detailed set of instructions. I forgot how draining school applications were. Even with the set of instructions, I was so confused and lost. Eventually all went well and I finally got my application done. One of the applications was through the universal application called NursingCas and the other was a supplemental application through the school. Hit that SUBMIT button and fingers crossed. Wait, no.. I still had to submit my TEAS scores and order official transcripts. That was so confusing as well. I think I was out of the school application system for too long. I don’t know, something about this application was so confusing. Through many nights of loud sighing and silent crying, I finally sent in my TEAS scores and transcripts.

Now it was the waiting game, which was accompanied with many sleepless nights. I think it was about a week later that I received an email saying that I got an interview! LIKE WHAT?! ME? AN INTERVIEW? Now it was loud yelling that gave my mom an heart attack cause I swear she thought I was dying. Sorry mom… But yes! I got an interview and that was probably one of the best days ever along with my other …best day evers… it was a very good day..okay?

I went ham on research on possible nursing school interview questions. I took notes and wrote answers to the most common interview questions. I was not going to let this opportunity go to waste.

Then comes the exciting but dreadful interview. OHH that was one heck of an interview but I’ll save the details for another blog post. This one’s getting a bit long. Thank you so much if you’re still with me. But damn, those questions they asked were wayyy different from the questions I prepared for. When I got out of my interview, I wasn’t sure if I was even going to see that school ever again. I blew it, I messed up. Sad life. Loud sigh…

Don’t you hate it when you leave an interview and you start replaying the questions and then you think of ways you could have answered? I do. And I couldn’t sleep for days because of it. But eventually I had to tell myself that whatever happens, happens and it’s not the end of the world. I was going to find out in about two weeks and if I didn’t get in, I could just try again. There’s always a way!

Two weeks go by and I’m driving to the post office and suddenly I get a text from my friend (who I went to the interview with). “OMG DID YOU CHECK YOUR EMAIL?” I’m sitting there like, holy crap. HOLY CRAP. So I rush home within speed limit because I drive like a responsible grandma. I ran through the door, grabbed my computer and started yelling nervously. My dads looking at me like, I can’t believe I raised this kid. LOL But eventually I said, ADMISSIONS LETTERS ARE OUT. I opened my email and there it was, the school’s decision email. It said, “Congratulations, You have been accepted to blahblahblah” OMG. ME? REALLY? I’m freaking going to nursing school!

And yep, that’s how I got into nursing school. Or I guess the the admissions process. My main point is, if you have the opportunity to talk to an admissions advisor, I highly recommend it, They are there to help you and guide you through the admissions process. It was especially helpful because I had no idea what I was doing. The admission advisors literally hold your hand until the first day of classes and I am so thankful for her. Even after being admitted and committing to the school, she still calls me to check up on my progress. I finally met her at the interviews and it was nerve wrecking. She finally met the weirdo she’s been contacting through email and phone. HEH.

Story time over, here are my TIPS with applying for nursing school!

  • Research lots and lots of schools! Even though I only applied to one (which now I think about was kind of risky and dumb) I still looked at many programs. There are actually a lot of roads that lead to an R.N. There’s got to be one that fits your needs!
  • Be patient! It takes a lot of patience when researching nursing schools. I was really overwhelmed at time and it got to a point where if I saw another nursing school requirements page, I’d go crazy. One step at a time!
  • Make a table of requirements! Researching schools and their requirements can get really repetitive and tiring. Many schools require different requirements so I recommend making an excel sheet or something to organize the requirements. If I remember correctly, some schools required microbiology lab!
  • Talk to an admissions counselor! If a counselor is available, you should talk to one! Requirements get really confusing at times, especially when the requirement sounds like the class you took but you’re not sure if it is the one they want. Ya feel? As I mentioned before, I sent my counselor my unofficial transcript and she told me what I had left for requirements. Super helpful! Or else, I would have been wasting time trying to take classes I already fulfilled.
  • Standardized test! Check with the school you want to apply to see what kind of standardized tests they want. Some require the TEAS, and some require other exams like the HESI. So check with the school to make sure you’re taking the right exam.

And that is pretty much it! This was a long post but thank you so so much for stopping by. Don’t forget to like, comment and hit the follow button to be notified when I post! Do you have any questions? Let me know down below and I’ll try to answer them to my best ability!

MAKEUP PRODUCTS EVERY COLLEGE STUDENT SHOULD OWN • EYES EDITION // LETIFFANYSHOW ✨

Hello friends 3

Welcome back to my blog 

I don’t know about you but I yawned a lot through school so eye products with a long staying power were a must! If not, you would see a girl with panda eyes walking around campus. How embarrassing!

Welcome to part 2 of the MAKEUP PRODUCTS EVERY COLLEGE STUDENT SHOULD OWN series! Today we’re talking about eyes. Typically for eyes, I only wear mascara. But that mascara has to have really good staying power and curling power or else…panda eyes.

Like my past post where I talked about essential face makeup (if you haven’t seen it yet, click here), I’ve included both high end and lower end products to help you discover products in whatever price point you’re at. And don’t forget to check out the weekly ads for drugstores because drugstore brands tend to go on sale!! 🙂

Alrighty, let’s get into the products!

IMG_2102.jpg

  • LOREAL Lash Paradise Waterproof – get it here

With the waterproof version, your mascara aint going nowhere… especially on those days you feel like crying cause the stuff you studied wasn’t on the exam. ..true story..  This mascara keeps the curls, keeping you look put together through all the mess. 🙂 I recently wrote a review on this mascara! Check it out here!! Out of all the drugstore mascaras that I’ve tried in my 23 years of life, this has become my all time favorite!

  • Maybelline The Colossal Big Shot- $7.99-get it here

I’m not going to lie, I bought this mascara because of it’s shiny packaging (darn you pretty packaging). I just naturally gravitated to that shiny gold packaging… There was also that ad with MannyMUA in it with the suitcase of mascaras. Raise your hand if you’ve seen it! 🙋 haha! This is a great everyday mascara to quickly swipe on and run to class. It’s also easy to remove so when you come home from a long day, you can quickly remove it and 💤💤💤!

  • Benefit Roller lash- $24- get it here (travel size $12- get it here)

I bought this mascara in the travel size on a whim because I was trying to reach the minimum to get the free gift at Ulta. (It didn’t work out because I guess travel sizes didn’t count. Oops!) But damn.. this mascara makes my eyelashes looking naturally long and full. It lengthens and keeps the curl throughout the day.

psst… I personally love buying the travel size from Benefit Cosmetics because it’s pretty much half the product and half the price of the regular size. What I mean is, you’re not losing any money by buying the smaller one. It works great for me because I am someone who doesn’t wear makeup everyday. I also love to buy and try new makeup products all the time so I don’t waste anything if I buy the smaller size. Does that make sense? I hope so! haha

  • Tarte lights, camera, lashes- $23-get it here

I first decided to give this mascara a try when there was a bundle sale at Ulta during Black Friday a few years back. It was my first high end mascara so I was pretty excited. This mascara lengthens and volumizes your lashes. The great thing about it is that it does not clump or flake! The price point is terrible in my opinion but whenever theres a special or sale going on Ulta, I restock restock restock!

psst… While i was looking for the link of this product, I noticed that they had this cool set for $21. (check it out here!) It looks like you get one full size and a travel size for $21 dollars! Thats a great deal! Hopefully it comes back into stock soon.

and…

That is it for my eye makeup essentials. I know it wasn’t much but I haven’t tried any eyeliners or eyeshadows lately! I also didn’t wear those products in school so I wouldn’t be much help anyways.

Recently I have been playing with some eyeshadows and learning how to use them on my monolids! That way, I don’t end up looking like I got punched in the eye. That’s not a cute look…

As always, thank you so so so much for stopping by. Don’t forget to like, comment, and follow me on this adventure (big button is on your right)! I hope you have a beautiful day and don’t forget to shine bright, you’re beautiful. ❤

 

Shine bright, peace out.✌

MAKEUP PRODUCTS EVERY COLLEGE STUDENT SHOULD OWN • FACE EDITION // LETIFFANYSHOW ✨

Hello friends 2

Welcome back to my blog 

Hey whats up hello? Saw yo pretty…face.. and. uh I don’t know the rest of the words..

I hope you are all enjoying what’s left of summer! This gif perfectly describes how I feel about summer ending and my reaction to everything in life. 😂

 crying college kim kardashian new girl keeping up with the kardashians GIF

Anyways, it’s back to school time and I thought I’d share some of my beauty essentials for the school year! This post will be split into three different posts because I tend to rant and I don’t want this post to get too long.

I’ve included both high end and lower end products to help you with options for whichever price point you’re at. Lots of the drugstore brands go on sale so make sure you check out the weekly ads!

Today, I’m going to start with FACE products! 

On a typical day at school, I would put on BB or CC cream for a lightweight coverage, set it with powder, and add color back onto my face with bronzer. If I was going to an social event or going out, I would use foundation instead of BB cream because it had more coverage and I would also add some concealer! I gotta look good for those photos hehe 🙂

Alright, enough rambling, time to get to the good stuff. I hope you enjoy this post and get inspired and… let me know what your typical face makeup routine is!

IMG_2066.jpg

  • Too Faced Hangoverx Replenishing Face Primer – get it here 

Primer is very importante if you want to keep your foundation in place throughout the day! This primer smells like coconuts and will keep your makeup look fresh!

  • Benefit Porefessional PRO balm primer – get it here

One of my favorite primers from Benefit cosmetics! This one makes your pores look nonexistent and keeps your foundation lookin gooood. Perfect for those nights out.. I mean studying. 😉

IMG_2071.jpg

  • Wet n Wild photofocus foundation (soft beige)-$5.99- get it here

Affordable af. $5.99 AND Wet n Wild goes on sale a lot at Rite Aid and CVS! This foundation keeps you looking photo ready for in case ya know, you wanna take selfies with yo besties. (psst. the smell is terrible so if you’re sensitive to smell, I’d avoid this one)

  • NYX BB cream (BBCR03 Golden)- $12.99- get it here

Definitely one of my go-to BB creams. It’s kind of pricey for drugstore but a little goes a long way and it has great results. It blends naturally and looks and feels lightweight. Great for those “no make up make up looks”

  • Tarte Amazonian Clay full coverage foundation (Medium Sand)- get it here

If you’re looking for a great coverage foundation, check this one out!. This foundation applies so smoothly and blends effortlessly. It is said to help improve your skin and has SPF 15 to protect you from those dirty sun rays.

Fun fact: this was one of the first high end foundations I have ever purchased. It was pretty exciting 🙂

  • IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream (Medium)-$38- get it here 

I just recently tried this and I instantly fell in love.I love how lightweight it feels on your skin but gives you a fuller coverage than most CC creams I’ve tried. It has a thicker consistency and applies kind of like a gel. Even though I didn’t use this while I was in school, I still think it would be perfect for days you don’t feel like trying but you still wanna look good.

psst. I’m working on a review for this product so click that follow button and you will be notified when I post! 😀 (shameless promo?)

IMG_2076.jpg

  • Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer- $8.99-get it here

I’ve repurchased this concealer many many times! The neutralizer shade helps cover up those dark eye circles from those late night studies! (or nasty hangovers..)

  • NYX HD Studio Concealer – $4.99-get it here

This concealer blends so well and for $4.99, you can’t beat that price. NYX also goes on sale a lot at Ulta so you gotta try it out!

IMG_2085.jpg

  • Maybelline Dream Wonder Powder (Buff Beige)-$8.99- get it here

I’m not a pro at picking out powders but this one has worked for me! It keeps my face looking matte. It also brings color back to my face after applying concealer.

oh yeah.. I’m currently looking for a new drugstore setting powder! if you have any suggestions, please comment below!

  • Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder (translucent)-$7.99- get it here

I’m not gonna lie, I bought this translucent powder because many of the top notch beauty gurus on YouTube swear by it. It was such a struggle to find it but I got it at my local walgreens! You can also get it on Amazon (with prime) here! I love how it looks on my skin but one major downside is the smell. It has a heavy smell of baby powder/makeup my grandma used to wear. But other than that, 8/10 would recommend!

IMG_2087.jpg

  • Wet n Wild Contouring Palette Contour (Caramel Toffee) $4.99- get it here

Wet n Wild makes some of the best products with an affordable price tag! This palette is easy to use and easily blends onto the skin making you look bronzed and beautiful (not like you weren’t beautiful before). The banana powder looking thing is great for setting your under eye concealer!

  • Benefit Hoola Bronzer- $29-get it here

I have the trial size which is $15 but I fell in love with this bronzer. I saw it in a lot of YouTube videos (damn it YouTube) and I finally gave in. No regrets tho! It enhances the features on your face. I like to apply it on the outside parameters of my face to give some color to my skin.

img_2092.jpg

  • Benefit Dandelion Twinkle- $29- get it here

This is my favorite powder highlighter in the whole entire world! It’s the perfect nudish pinky color and I love how it makes your face gloooww  in the sunlight! The staying power is pretty darn good.

It is high end as it retails for $29 but I think it’s worth the splurging, especially if you use it often.

  • Maybelline Strobing Stick Illuminating Highlighter-$8.99- get it here 

I think this may have been the first highlighter I ever tried and I loved it. It’s creamy and glides effortlessly onto your skin. It’s also easy to blend with your fingers or a brush! There are often deals around Maybelline at drugstores and Ulta so the next time you drop by, pick one up and try it out yourself!

and…

That is it for my back to school beauty essentials: face edition!

I really hope you enjoyed this post. Like, comment your favorite FACE routine and follow my blog if you haven’t already! 😀 We’re at 34 subscribers (and none of them are me)! Although 34 doesn’t seem a lot, I never expected for anyone to look at my blog. So thank you soo soo much for following my blog or even taking a second to stop by! I hope you have a beautiful day and don’t forget to shine bright, you’re beautiful ❤

 

Shine bright, peace out.✌

UPDATE: Reflecting on this college stuff

Hello friends! I’mmmm baaacccckkkk!!! Sorry for being MIA but ya girl has graduated from cawledge! ERRR back it up a bit, I graduated in December 2016, but I finally got to walk across the grand stage this past weekend. I was trying so hard to not trip..

Graduated UC Merced with a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology!

College was definitely an experience but I grew the most during those past 4.5 years. Merced is one of those towns in the middle of nowhere that no one talks about. I, myself, had no idea what Merced was until I got into the school. When I first got there as a freshman, I was definitely confused. There were cows everywhere.. agriculture everywhere.. there was even a farm with camels down the street from my school. CAMELS. like what?! And there was literally nothing to do in Merced. I wanted to go home. But I’m glad I didn’t. I met my best friends there, I learned to be more appreciative of the things I had because there were people who didn’t have much, I learned what a heartbreak felt like, and I experienced what it felt like to have people leave you when you needed them the most. But it all made me who I am today because I am stronger.

The hardest part about college was failing. It was the feeling of hopelessness when you spent hours studying for an exam and yet, you fail. Those days were the worst. I’m very open about my failures so yes, I failed 3 classes in college and withdrew from one. Withdrawing from a class made me graduate late, which was a bummer cause I didn’t get to graduate with my best friends. But the point is, I never gave up. Yes, I cried about it and completely felt like shit about it. But I got back up on my feet and tried again. I kept trying and here I am with this snazzy diploma that will bring me to my next destination. So what I’m trying to say is, don’t give up. Keep your eye on the prize and keep going. I never even considered changing my emphasis or my major. I was determined to graduate with the major I entered college in because ultimately, that was the direction I wanted to go.

…I miss college… cherish these four years or however long it will take you because you’ll only be 18-22 years old once. I miss my best friends and dreading class everyday. Now I just dread work haha!

You can do it! Believe in yourself. Remember to tell yourself that and to the ones you love. Stay positive and everything will be okay! 🙂 ❤

Shine bright, peace out.
